Distant Saint City.
The huge city that used to be bustling in the past was extremely depressed today, like it was shrouded by dark clouds and the whole city appeared extremely quiet.
It was just that, in the dark, there were countless eyes fixed on the towering walls of the city.
There sat numerous quiet figures. Each one clad in a white robe, emitting powerful Genesis Qi from their bodies.
The disciples of the Sacred Palace.
The battle between the Sacred Palace and the Cangxuan Sect had long been known throughout the Shengzhou Continent.
The disciples of the Cangxuan Sect, led by Zhou Yuan, came out of the sect mightily, and destroyed all the interceptions of the Sacred Palace along the way. Like a gust of wind, they swept away the clouds, and headed straight for Distant Saint City.
The transfer point here could pass through the Cangmang Continent at the fastest speed, so everyone knew that this must be the place where the disciples of the two sects would fight.
The most elite disciples of the Sacred Palace were already sitting there, waiting for the arrival of the disciples of the Cangxuan Sect.
And according to the news that they had received, the Cangxuan sect disciples, led by Zhou Yuan, had destroyed all the obstacles along the way. They most likely would soon arrive at Distant Saint City, and at that time, both sides will meet and have the most intense confrontation.
Many people were looking forward to the battle, since it was rare to see a battle between the Sacred Palace and Cangxuan Sect these two major sects....
As a famous city of the Shengzhou Continent, Distant Saint City was naturally dominated by a powerful overlord. But he was willing to give up his home as long as the two sides did not demolish the city. It seemed the overlord was still giving face to the two major sects.
Inside Distant Saint City, countless eyes were fixed on the center of the city wall, where a figure was sitting quietly, white-hair fluttering in the air. It was Jiang Taishen of the Sacred Palace.
As someone who had occupied the top position of the Chosens List for many years, Jiang Taishen's popularity in the Shengzhou Continent was clearly above that of ordinary people.
And under countless watchful gazes, Jiang Taishen’s face was devoid of expression and his eyes drooped.
Next to him was Zhan Taiqing peering into the distance. “We have cultivated martial arts for many years, I didn’t expect us to guard the door for a less advanced disciple.”
It was obvious that she felt resentment towards Wu Huang who rose all of a sudden.
Jiang Taishen just responded indifferently, “The Sacred Palace only respects strength. Since he is stronger than us, we can only stand behind him.”
Zhan Taiqing clenched her teeth, “That’s because the Palace Master is biased towards him! If the palace master had spent that kind of resources and energy on us, I believe we would be stronger than Wu Huang!”
Jiang Taishen frowned a little, looking at Zhan Taiqing, and said calmly, “It’s fine that you said it here, but don’t mention it ever again.”
Zhan Taiqing clenched her teeth. It was only a moment later that she gradually calmed herself. “I heard that Zhou Yuan of the Cangxuan Sect had defeated Chu Qing, and also became the first in the history of the Cangxuan Sect to seize the seven arts with the Chosen Competition battle.”
Jiang Taishen said in a quiet voice, “He is indeed extraordinary. It is no wonder that Palace Master personally issued an order. That person will no doubt be a problem to the Sacred Palace once he grows up.” "
“Who would have thought that I fought with Chu Qing for many years, but in the end, was surpassed by two juniors.”
Zhan Taiqing fell silent. She also didn’t expect Zhou Yuan, who she looked down on in the Mythic Utopia, to be this strong.
“Wu Huang and Zhou Yuan, I wonder who will win in the end?”
Jiang Taishen also pondered for a moment, and then shook his head, “They have both reached the pinnacle of the Alpha Origin stage and I have never seen such strong Genesis Qi foundation before. It really is hard to say who will win.”
“But no matter who wins, their fight will be the pinnacle of the countless battles of the Alpha Origin stage in the Cangxuan Heaven in the last hundred years. "
Zhan Taiqing did not speak and just coldly sneered. She wanted like to know that if Wu Huang lost, would the Palace Master still value him so much?
While these thoughts were flashing across her mind, Jiang Taishen suddenly lifted his head.
Zhan Taiqing froze for a moment when she heard this before she shifted her scarlet eyes up.
At the same time, the many elite disciples of the Sacred Palace on the walls also lifted their heads.
Then they saw that, in the distance, was a stream of light racing toward the Distant Saint City at an astonishing speed.
The momentum was fierce, aggressive and filled with murderous spirit.
And within Distant Saint City, countless eyes were blazing as they peered into the distance. The silence in the city was broken. They knew that when the disciples of the Cangxuan Sect arrived was also when the battle between the two major sects would begin.
Under the gaze of countless people, numerous streams of light tore through the sky and finally stopped at a distance from Distant Saint City.
In front of the many streams of light was a young man treading on a Genesis Qi cloud. His body was tall and slender, and his face fierce.
He stood there, emitting astonishing Genesis Qi from his body.
And behind him, Chu Qing, Kong Shen, Li Qingchan and other Chosens of the Cangxuan Sect closely followed.
Their eyes, all filled with intense killing intent, darted to Jiang Taishen and others on the city walls.
“You've come a little earlier than I expected.” Jiang Taishen met their gaze.
He first glanced at Chu Qing, and then his eyes locked on Zhou Yuan’s body. His expression grew solemn, as he perceived a very strong dangerous aura coming from his body.
“Without Chosens leading the groups, your obstacles along the way had little effect.” Chu Qing grinned.
“The obstacles were just to consume some of your Genesis Qi and energy.”
Jiang Taishen said indifferently. “To get through this place, you have to ask us first.”
Many of the elite disciples of the Sacred Palace erupted into a long, loud rumbling roar and Genesis Qi surged out.
Watching this scene, Chu Qing’s eyes gradually grew fiercer, “Disciples of the Cangxuan Sect, get ready!”
Behind him, Kong Sheng, Li Qingchan and other elite disciples also erupted with Genesis Qi.
Zhan Taiqing's scarlet eyes flickered with killing intent.
Beams of light shot out from the walls, like locusts, pouncing over to the disciples of the Cangxuan Sect.
And as they punched forward, the disciples of the Cangxuan Sect, without waiting for the order, burst into roars of anger. As their Genesis Qi surged, they turned into countless beams of light to meet the enemies head-on.
Outside Distant Saint City, a chaotic battle instantly broke out.
Both sides knew that there was nothing else to say. The battle must continue.
“Junior Brother Zhou Yuan, we will stop Jiang Taishen and the other Chosens. You can continue to head into the city.” Chu Qing said in a nonchalant voice, strands of hair began to grow from his head.
“Thank you everybody.” Zhou Yuan exclaimed.
Chu Qing grinned, “no need to be polite, you’re representing our Cangxuan Sect...”
His smile gradually faded and his tone of voice turned serious. “Be careful, you should know that you’re the most important person in this battle.”
He soared into the sky with a flash and no longer said anything else.
“Jiang Taishen, do you dare to fight me!” Chu Qing roared.
“Chu Qing, even if I’m not ranked first on the Chosens list anymore, I’m not afraid of you!” Jiang Tiashen sneered.
“The Chosens of the Sacred Palace, listen to my order, stop the Cangxuan Sect!”
As he soared skywards, his roaring voice resounded.
The next moment, the Chosens led by Zhan Taiqing also directly sped towards Kong Sheng, Li Qingchan and other Cangxuan Sect Chosens.
Kong Sheng, Li Qingchan and the others naturally met them head on.
Outside Distant Saint City, the battle was even more chaotic.
Hovering in the sky, Zhou Yuan scanned across the large scale battle before him. His eyes darted suddenly, only to see several figures quietly appearing in the distance and secretly killing the elite disciples of the Sacred Palace.
He was very familiar with the fluctuation of Genesis Qi around the several figures.
“Qingyu, Luluo, Li Chunjun.....you’re here, too?” A smile lit up on Zhou Yuan's face.
And seemingly aware of this, Zuoqiu Qingyu and the others also shifted their gazes towards him. The little demon girl smiled and Luluo blinked her huge eyes and made a cheering gesture at him.
Zhou Yuan nodded slightly at them, and then his gaze wandered across the chaotic battlefield and fell on Distant Saint City.
The next moment, he flashed away and headed straight into Distant Saint City under countless gazes.
“The disciples of the Cangxuan Sect wish senior brother Zhou Yuan return victorious!”
Many disciples of the Cangxuan Sect watched as Zhou Yuan shot out like a flash of lightning, and at the next moment, deafening roars resounded across the universe, causing Distant Saint City to tremble.
Amidst loud roars and cheers, Zhou Yuan’s figure did not stop and simply responded with a gentle wave of his hand. He then rushed into Distant Saint City under countless gazes.
After entering the city, Zhou Yuan did not pause once. He transformed into a beam of light and headed straight for the transfer point in the centre of the city.
A few minutes later.
Zhou Yuan reappeared in the centre of the city, where the huge transfer point glowing brightly, but his footsteps stopped abruptly in front of a stone pillar.
There was a figure in a gold robe, standing with his back facing him.
He simply stood there while Genesis Qi that was enough to make one tremble slowly emitted from his body, causing the space to tremble.
Seemingly sensing the arrival of Zhou Yuan, the golden robed figure slowly turned around, revealing a familiar face that was no different from two years ago.
Zhou Yuan stared at him, his eyes slightly narrowed, and his voice indifferent.
Wu Huang stood with one hand behind his back. His eyes cold and distant, but in the depths of his eyes hid a sea of blood.
“Zhou Yuan, stop there. Two years ago, you destroyed my body. Two years later...I’m going to make you watch your Great Zhou be completely destroyed by my Great Wu.”
“So what if you won against me last time?”
“Now that I stand here again, that means, I, Wu Huang, am the true sacred dragon!”
There wasn’t the slightest ripple of emotion in Zhou Yuan's eyes as he looked Wu Huang in the eye, but a boundless murderous spirit gradually rose from his body as he spoke in a bone-chilling voice.
“A family of thieves, dare to stop me?”
